On April 14th at Lawrence Education Center from 6:00-7:30 p.m., Dr. Cynthia Mester will speak about the Mental Health Juvenile Justice (MHJJ) program. The goal of this program is to support identified youth and their families to help prevent further involvement with the legal system. The program is aimed at strengthening the youth and families' relationship with courts, probation, detention, schools, health care, mental health, and other community-based services. (More information about the program can be found here https://www.mhcci.org/Child-Mental-Health/Services-Available/Juvenile-Justice.aspx). District 186 educators from the Sangamopn County Juvenile Center will speak about helping transition students back to their home school after being at the JVC, helping parents and students understand the process and how to help the students receive credit for schoolwork done while at JVC.
